St. Joseph: Thursday, St. Benedict: 930 Saturday: for Communion Moderator urges plural prayers BRANDON (CP) Christian prayers on occasions such as the opening of parliament and the inauguration of tax-supported institutions should be rotated with prayers of other religions, Dr. Bruce McLeod, moderator of the United Church of Canada, said last week. "We have to learn to live with pluralism in the Toronto clergyman said in an interview." There are other religious approaches to life in the Canadian lifestyle than Christianity." Dr. McLeod, on a 10-day tour of Manitoba, criticized radio stations for broadcasting programs of "hard, angry religious voices" appealing to narrow Christian exclusivism. He said most of these programs are paid for by the 'Christian homes model for society' Centennial year Somewhat overshadowed by Winnipeg's 100th birthday this year, the town of Steinbach. Man., also has a centennial. In 1873 the Canadian government set aside eight townships in an area 40 miles southeast of Winnepeg for the exclusive use of Mennonite settlers emigrating from Russia. Over the next three years, members of the religious sect settled. Their determination to conquer the land is depicted ath the museum and pioneer village at Steinbach which includes a specially-constructed version of an 1877 windmill. Football player tackles philosophy The example of Christian homes as "a model of God's family" was stressed here recently in a family life teach- in sponsored by Lethbridge Inter-Varsity Christian Fellowship. Cathie Nicholl, IVCF staff member, gave the keynote address at meetings conducted in St. Andrew's Presbyterian Church. "Be an effective family model showing Christian friendship and Miss Nicholl urged. Workshop sessions dealt with various aspects of family life. About 50 persons attended the full-day program. radio station sponsors "and that's a pretty bad comment on the radio stations." Dr. McLeod also said the church must adapt itself to the present and concern itself with social problems rather than encourage "the belief that it's 1904 instead of 1974." He lumped Adolph Hitler, southern plantation owners, slum landlords and current profiteers together 'as proponents of religion provided believers spoke only of heaven and not the earth. "To open yourself to God's spirit is to find your hands by reflex action, to get involved in his he added. It is for these reasons that churches can justify supporting foreign liberation movements even though they may be considered by some to be violent movements. Dr. McLeod said third- world violence is more of a "counter-violence" when compared with the violence of people being killed every day through starvation. "The violence the freedom fighter uses is nowhere near the violence we have used and use Who are we to be so morally indignant about that man's By NOEL BUCHANAN Herald Staff Writer Montreal Alouette defensive halfback Ron Perowne has tackled a fresh challenge from the west the Naraniata team philosophy. "The thing we really like about Naramata is the way the staff accept everyone as they are and, to the best of their ability, try to give helpful answers to persons 'taking time-out to review their direction in Mr. Perowne said in an interview. In January this year, accompanied by his wife, Gail, a registered nurse, Mr. Perowne joined the Naramata staff as an observer. Founded as a United Church of Canada Christian leadership training centre 26 years ago, Naramata Centre for Continuing Education is located on the east shore of Okanagan Lake, B.C. "There were 28 participants, aged 17 to 25, in this past winter's 4Vz month Mr. Perowne said. "The thing we noticed, and this has always been true of Naramata, was a strong sense of Christian community spirit."

Sat hard to define Christian training. At Naramata, he said, "No one is pushing Je- sus. But all the staff are committed Christians. Their door is open to help anyone. They don't have all the answers, but do their best." Mr. Perowne said he understands some United Church members are concerned about what they see as changes in the Naraniata program. However, from his own experience, Mr. Perowne said he felt Naramata was really trying to translate Christian experience into real life. "I'm a member of Mount Royal United Church in he said. "No, I haven't gone to church every Sunday all my life. But this God thing is for all of life, not just in a comfortable pew among people who believe the same as me. That's why it is good to see the doors open to anyone." Wife Gail echoed these sentiments saying Christian beliefs need to be expressed in community action. "For us, the Naramata experience has taught us how to make our own decisions about Gail said. "Students come to Naramata having been organized and taught to go to university to get degrees to get a job. Afterwards they leave. Naramata ready to make their own choices and accept Teens asked to wait ANT1GONISH, N.S. (CP) Teen-agers who want to get married in the Roman Catholic church here are going to have a three-month wait, it was announced this week. A pastoral letter, written by Bishop William E. Power, said the step has been taken to curb teen-age marriages because of evidence that they are more likely to fail. The bishop said a three- month waiting period will be compulsory if- either of the parties is less than 20 years old. During the waiting period, couples will be required to consult a priest, their parents and, if necessary, marriage counsellors. The move follows a year- long study by the diocese that found "the incidence of marriage failure was modi higher among couples who were married under the age of 20 than it was with those who were older when they married." The letter said similar action has been taken in responsibility for their own lives." The couple explained winter sessions at Naramata start with six weeks of structural material. Beyond that, each group selects studies which appeal to them. The past session included ecology, communications and human relations instruction. On the May 15 agenda of the Southern Alberta United Church presbytery meeting, there is scheduled a review of Naramata programs, reports Christian development convenor, Anne McCracken. Song leader Vann Trapp, Moody Bible Institute voice teacher, will direct a concert of sacred music March 22 at p.m. in the LCI gymnasium. The Men's Glee Club, students at the Chicago Bible school, will sing. Preaching power 6given by God' Only God gives a preacher spiritual authority, claimed visiting evangelist Eunice Myer of High River this week. "I feel a man has more authority, but it is the Holy Ghost who gives authority in the Miss Myer said. "When a woman knows her place, God will honor her. The Lord has been good to me; I've no need to ask a pastor for meetings, they are all lined up ahead to keep me going." Miss Myer has been, conducting a series of gospel meetings at Lethbridge Pentecostal Tabernacle. She is scheduled to speak again Sunday at 11 a.m. and p.m. Converted to Christ in Lethbridge at nine years. Miss Myer said she desired from childhood to become a preacher. "For a time I wanted to be a nurse and applied for training at Lethbridge and Calgary. But I got no word back and feel that was the leading of the Lord." Miss Myer said. Ordained as a Pentecostal Assemblies of Canada minister. Miss Myer took her theological training at Central Pentecostal Bible College in Saskatoon. She has preached extensively for 30 years in Canada and the United States. "I find it increasingly easier to talk to people about Miss Myer said. "I believe world conditions are prompting spiritual concern." Miss Myer said she would encourage more young woman to consider the ministry as a vocation. "I believe the perfect set-up is a husband and wife she said. "But since a tot of men are not involved, women are needed in Christian ministry. Children's work is a much neglected area. I really love camp meetings with young people. Whatever kind of ministry you enter, it has to be a tola! commitment." Miss Myer supplements her preaching with accordian music.
